Difficult News: Helping and Coping
March 14, 2017
12 – 1:30 pm
Presenters: Amy Szatanek, LCSW-ACHP-SW, Director of Patient & Family Services for Calvert Hospice
Melinda Ruppert, LCPC, Bereavement Coordinator for Calvert Hospice
Many of us don’t know what to say or do when someone we care about receives a diagnosis of a serious or terminal illness. Experienced hospice bereavement team members will recommend ways to respond empathetically and supportively by exploring the feelings of fear, loss, and grief that accompany difficult news. A lengthy Q&A session will enable participants to address individual concerns.
